# of Employees:
Serving an ever-growing team of 6,000 employees in 27 countries, Howden’s IT team needed a reliable document productivity partner to provide scalable solutions for the company. After reviewing the market-leading PDF solutions for functionality, usability, and cost, Howden chose Nitro as the solution best suited to solving its document and workflow challenges.
- After a review of PDF software in use across the organization, Howden uncovered 27 different PDF products and versions, resulting in a myriad of incompatibility challenges.
- One-third of the installed PDF software was not the latest version and had outdated security patches, while many products did not offer product support or training resources.
- A great deal of Howden’s users required PDF editing capabilities, and some associates were using multiple PDF products for printing and editing purposes.
Nitro products are feature-rich and extremely user-friendly, and we saw a significant impact on user productivity.
